"Atlantis" sits on Pad 39B the night before the second scrub. She is primed and ready to go on STS-115. The RSS structure just rolled back unveiling her. Atlantis, the fourth orbiter to become operational at Kennedy Space Center, was named after the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts from 1930 to 1966. Note the ground crew still on the mobile platform putting the finishing touches using a crane.

I enjoy looking at space shuttle photos and this one is very nice because it has a nice view and color. The dark clouds behind it make the shuttle really stand out.
